    cool pics! I like the tubers on the U. alpina. Are you sure that's the true U. humboltii? I've had mine for a couple months now, and it seems a little different. The leaves on mine are rounder and its making all these fern-like runner/stolon things by which it spreads.

    Is that a bromeliad in the dart frog tank? Maybe you could set a utric in there...

    yes it is most definatly U. humboldtii, however its a different clone than most out there. im guessing this clone is one that grows next to streams as it definatly likes being soaked in a heavy soil(its in mostly pure peat). both Pyro and i have noticed it really doesnt like being grown like its reletives in lighter soil mixes. a friend has a different clone that is smaller that he has grown in brom's in dart tanks. however i dont think this clone would do well in there and my broms are to small for nelumbifolia

    You learn something new every day. I never knew there were different froms of U. humboltii. I've got mine in waterlogged LFS and its making as many stolons as leaves. I'll get some pics once it gets a little more established.

    dont have my copy of Taylors here at work but it lists a range of places they grow, the two that stick out in my mind though are in brom's and alongside streams. given this clones preferance for heavy, soaked soil versus the lighter water logged LFS that most grow the species in leads me to think it might be a more terrestrial form. the clone a friend has grown in brom's in his dart frog tanks also is the one most are growing in waterlogged LFS as its quite happy there aswell(hope to get this clone next spring/summer if he has extras)
